r8169: use RxFIFO overflow workaround for 8168c chipset.

I found that one of the 8168c chipsets (concretely XID 1c4000c0) starts
generating RxFIFO overflow errors. The result is an infinite loop in
interrupt handler as the RxFIFOOver is handled only for ...MAC_VER_11.
With the workaround everything goes fine.
